Here we are 3 days into my 35th year here on this thing we call the earth. And there are still so many things that I don’t understand. I would have thought by the time I had reached this age I would have figured most things out, however it seems like I have barely begun to figure out who I am or what I’m supposed to be doing here.
One of which is why birthdays seem to be getting so much rougher as I get older. However, they seem to. There always seems to be disappointment and or frustration that get mixed into the fun and celebration and great times of celebration and friends.
Why? Haven’t figured that one out yet. I try to not expect anything, or run through all the scenarios that could possibly happen so I won’t be disappointed or surprised by anything, and somehow I still end up being surprised, caught off guard, set off by something. It’s really not any fun when that happens. Ha, not really what I was going to blog about today, so here we go.
I am working on a list of 40 things I want to do before my 40th birthday! 40 before 40, that will be an upcoming blog post, I’m excited to see what I can accomplish in the next 5 years! We will see what God’s plans are, I am prayerfully considering what I put on the list, however I know I have to be flexible and allow Him to lead where I go.
Working hard to set aside dedicated time each week to write, and blog! I think this is going to become an important part of my self care in the coming months. Even if it’s 15 minutes a day or at a time, it’s going to be dedicated!
Find the joy in each day! This seems to be a much larger struggle for me than it should be! I don’t get it and don’t like it!
Today I am grateful to be able to serve at church, if I’m completely honest – which is truly very hard for me – I don’t want to today. I wanted to stay home and not see people today, I have had many frustrations about this service and day and it has barely started.
However I will find joy and attempt to keep that as my focus!
I have a church family who will love me even through this struggle!
I have volunteers who will fill in at the last moment.
I get to serve.
There will be a workout this afternoon! I will become better and work toward my fitness goals!
Pray you have a blessed day! Praying for you today!
